Neck and cleavage rejuvenation


It is important to take care of your neck, cleavage and hands. The contrast between a treated, rejuvenated face and an ageing neck, hands and cleavage will not look good.


A wide variety of techniques are used to rejuvenate the neck or cleavage: lasers, radiofrequency and ultrasound; this is called photorejuvenation. Photorejuvenation is combined with injection and peel techniques.


Treatment plans combining several of these techniques are the most effective:


  • Dark spots are removed using Q-Switched pigment lasers, IPL peels and liquid nitrogen.
  • Red marks and small, visible blood vessels are removed by vascular lasers, pulsed dye lasers, KTP lasers and IPL treatments.
  • Fractional CO2 lasers are used to regenerate the skin’s texture and remove certain marks.
  • Radiofrequency and Ultrasounds are helpful to fight sagging.
  • An injection of hyaluronic acid fills the wrinkles across the neck.
  • Mesotherapy improves the creases in the neck and cleavage but is also used for moisturization and to some extent to slow the ageing process.
  • Botulinum toxin is sometimes used for overprominent platysmal bands when the neck muscles are ‘hyperkinetic’.


For more details on these techniques see the Cosmetic dermatology and laser sections.
